Slovakia: Silhouettes of Falun Gong Persecution Victims in Piestany

On Saturday June 23rd, Falun Gong practitioners visited Piestany, a middle-sized spa city in western Slovakia, in order to introduce Falun Gong and raise awareness about the persecution in China. On unfolded information posters the passers-by could see and read stories of people who were persecuted or even tortured to death by the communist regime in China because they practised Falun Gong. After seeing the scenes from the persecution many people came up to the petition and signed it. On Saturday morning more then a hundred signatures were collected.

Quite a few people were interested in the exercises and admired the peace of the practitioners, who were not disturbed by the sounds from the surrounding area. Some people showed interest in learning the exercises. A number of young children tried the exercises right away.

One of the possibilities to show support and express respect for the persecution victims was the possibility to draw silhouettes on the pavement. On the pavement there appeared soon a few silhouettes, which attracted the attention of passers-by who were reminded about the crimes of the communist regime against Falun Gong practitioners in China.
